On September 25, 2020 the Lee County Sheriff’s Office responded to a burglary at the Pier 41 Marine boat dealership in Fort Myers located at 15820 South Tamiami Trail. Their Aviation Unit used state of the art FLIR camera technology (probably from their H-125) and observed the suspect, later identified as Humberto Diaz (DOB 07/04/1966).

ZeroAvia Touts Hydrogen-Electric Passenger Flight

Flight Completed Taxi, Takeoff, A Full Pattern Circuit, And Landing
